Jones, Edmonds both win seventh
2004 Rawlings NL Gold Glove winners Player, position Number of Gold Gloves Fielding Pct. Greg Maddux, P 14 .987 Mike Matheny, C 3 .999 Todd Helton, 1B 3 .997 Luis Castillo, 2B 2 .991 Scott Rolen, 3B 6 .977 Cesar Izturis, SS 1 .985 Jim Edmonds, OF 7 .988 Andruw Jones, OF 7 .993 Steve Finley, OF 5 .992
Maddux had won 13 in a row, a record among NL pitchers, before Atlanta's Mike Hampton replaced him in 2003. Back with the Chicago Cubs this year, Maddux is closing in on Jim Kaat's record for pitchers of 16 Gold Gloves. Brooks Robinson also won 16 Gold Gloves at third base.
Center fielder Jim Edmonds won his fifth straight Gold Glove and seventh overall (two with the Angels in 1997 and '98), third baseman Scott Rolen won his fifth in a row and sixth overall, and catcher Mike Matheny got the award for the second straight year and third time overall.
Izturis is the first Dodgers shortstop to win the Gold Glove since Maury Wills in 1962.
Last year, Florida's Derrek Lee won at first and San Francisco's Jose Cruz Jr. won in the outfield.
Edmonds, Finley, Matheny and Rolen each earned $50,000 bonuses, while Castillo and Helton earned $25,000 apiece.
Gold Gloves have been presented since 1957 by Rawlings and are voted on by managers and coaches before the end of the regular season. They may not select players on their own teams, and they vote only for players in their own league.
AL Gold Glove winners were announced Tuesday.
